    The strength of amodal completion is known to be modulated by contour relationships and global shape. Some researchers have shown that amodal completion also depends on surface similarity, but they have not distinguished the relative importance of similarity in surface representations either pre...

    This article illustrates a dissociation between the perceived attributes of an object and the ability of those attributes to guide the deployment of attention in visual search. Orientation is an attribute that guides search. Thus, a vertical line will 'pop out' amid horizontal distractors....

    Capacity limitations of perceptual surface completion were assessed using a simultaneous-sequential method. Observers searched among multiple surfaces requiring perceptual completion in front of other objects (modal completion) or behind other objects (amodal completion). In the simultaneous...

    Whether face gender perception is processed by encoding holistic (whole) or featural (parts) information is a controversial issue. Although neuroimaging studies have identified brain regions related to face gender perception, the temporal dynamics of this process remain under debate. Here, we...

  • Amodal completion of unconsciously presented objects. Emmanouil, Tatiana; Ro, Tony // Psychonomic Bulletin & Review;Oct2014, Vol. 21 Issue 5, p1188 

    In the visual environment, objects often appear behind occluding surfaces, yet they are automatically and effortlessly perceived as complete. Here, we examined whether visually occluded objects that are presented below the threshold of awareness are amodally completed. We used a priming paradigm...

    Background: Humans readily perceive whole shapes as intact when some portions of these shapes are occluded by another object. This type of amodal completion has also been widely reported among nonhuman animals and is related to pictorial depth perception. However, the effect of a cast shadow, a...
